A 6.4 earthquake rocked California Tuesday leaving tens of thousands without power, about 200 miles north of San Francisco, three days after a 3.6 quake shook the Bay Area

A massive 6.4 earthquake rocked California early Tuesday morning leaving tens of thousands of people without power, with its epicenter just about 200 miles north of San Francisco, three days after a 3.6 quake shook the Bay Area.

The strong earthquake left more than 71,000 people without power – about 71 percent of Humboldt County – after it struck 7.5 miles southwest of Ferndale, a small community 210 miles northwest of San Francisco, the US Geological Survey reported.

Dozens of smaller quakes, some as powerful as a 4.6 magnitude, have since struck the area following the quake, USGS reported.

The earthquake struck at 2:34 a.m. local time and was about 10 miles deep, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said. It struck about 7.4 west-southwest of Ferndale, California, a Humboldt County town that is home to about 15,000 people and located 261 miles north of San Francisco and just south of Eureka.

There was no risk of a tsunami, the U.S. tsunami warning system said.
